    Hi! Do you know an app for reading PDF on iPad with full reflow? I would like to read PDF like an ePub in iBooks. Looking for total control of text size but do not loose images and vector graphics.

    Just downloaded but it is useles without online account. Will test later... Anyway it seems that it would be cumbersome as iOS does not recognize it as PDF viewer - I opened PDF on the web and I got only option to open it in Bluefire or iBooks. I guess that with Mendeley one need to upload the document into the cloud first and then can read/download with the app.
    But thanks for reply!

    I don't have Mendeley, so I'm not certain, but you could probably use iTunes' File Sharing to import pdf files from your computer.

    GoodReader is the way to go apparently, I know Scott Tim is a fan!

    I've seen goodreader recommended a few times. I payed for this app myself, and after using it...


    I gotta think Mac users just don't really know what reflow means, or what kind of goodness they are missing out on. It's still the one area Android is winning.

    If you know anything about coding do us a favor...go to the verizon store or best buy...pick up a galaxy tab and use the text reflow feature on the built-in thinkfree app.

    Create that for ipad and charge me $10. I'll happily pay and recommend it to others.

    (For those who haven't tried it...goodreader DOES have reflow...but it's super crappy, has no good options in reflow mode, switches to vertical scroll, and although it does reflow the text, it still, on resize extends the text beyond the screen area below...thus negating the ENTIRE purpose of using reflow in the first place. It makes me think of what someone might come up with if they had heard of text reflow, but never actually seen it and didn't spend much time trying to make sense of what they'd heard).
